Well-check Exams

Check-ups

To ensure good health care, we suggest regular periodic "checkups". Your child's growth, development, and feedings will be discussed. You will receive anticipatory guidance for the subsequent interval of time.

During the first year of life, routine examinations is recommended at:

  • 2 weeks,
  • 2 months,
  • 4 months,
  • 6 months,
  • 9 months,
  • 1 year.

Immunizations

Immunizations play an important role in protecting your child from a wide variety of disease including:

  • hepatitis,
  • diphtheria,
  • whooping cough,
  • tetanus,
  • polio,
  • measles,
  • mumps,
  • German measles,
  • certain types of meningitis,
  • chicken pox,
  • blood infections,
  • ear infections.

These will be administered at checkups. In addition, urine and blood tests as well as skin tests for tuberculosis (TB) will be done periodically. The benefits and risks of any procedure or prescribed medication will be discussed with you at these checkups.
